Many people confuse the RV Group with Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports purchases items and test them RV Group does not! RV Group bases their reports on brochures. They do not go inside RV's and look at them.
If you want to base your high dollar purchase based on what someone says when all they did was look at a brochure, then buyer beware!

There are other web sites you could go to besides this one. But, this site has more than 1800 rigs on line. Interior photos etc. I would start there or another site you might know about, find what you like, go to the manufactures web site look at other floor plans, options etc, and then find a dealer or order from the factory.

There are good/bad points to every brand. What works for one is not for all. I would suggest you make a list f floor plans you like-don't,
weight-length you want, price range,options you must have-don't need. January is usually the starting time for RV shows. Check out the web sites of the RV manf. Just remember its always a give-take situation. Happy Hunting!

For a seasonal site, A fiver would not be my first choice. A real advantage to a fiver is it's towing behaviors. Disadvantage is stairs. If it's not going to be towed, why not get a nice single level TT?

Be sure to also check out the Travel Supreme brand. Most people that have owned them are very happy with them. Take your time and continue to research like you are doing. Talk with those that own the rigs you may be intrested in. Good luck and enjoy the hunt!

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by diandtom:
We have a 33-5V Arctic Fox. It is very well insulated and like the floor plan. The storage area could have been made better.(sewer pipes in storage area) I have had to take it back to the factory twice. One time was a crack in the side from the bedroom slide not installed right. We just got back from getting the front of the roof reglued down. They think the glue went into the wood causing the roof to come unglued. I am very happy with the factory and how they have treated me. I had some damage from a gas pump protector and they sent me new parts very cheap and I fixed it my self. I am not too happy with the dealer. I get the feeling after the sale they are done with you. I would buy another Fox if they had a dealer closer to me.

We have a A/F, our last 5th was an A/F that had the same problem with the roof. I was up on the roof removing tree debries when the wife retracted th L R slider. Windows and vents closed. The rubber roof material became a baloon around all the seams and edges of the plywood roof, as the rubber streched it lifted more and more of the rubber.
If you were at the factory you saw them pressure test thr units for leaks by pressureizing the interior. The air tight trailer pressurizes beyond the adhesive bond of the rubber roof causing thr rubber to seperate from the plywood.
After the factory reglued our roof we always open vents or the door to open or close the siders and have not had a roof seperation since.

Think about it.
